The Invention of Dr. Grip Writing Instruments

Based on a common need for a more comfortable writing instrument, Pilot set out to give people the writing solution they were looking for. In 1995, Pilot launched Dr. Grip, a pen and mechanical pencil collection designed to provide superior writing comfort and be the solution to that demand. By 1996, the entire Dr. Grip line earned the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation. More recently in 2012, a three-month study conducted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute found Dr. Grip Center of Gravity (COG) surpassed key competitors in overall comfort ratings for users both with and without arthritis. In the study, Dr. Grip COG was proven to be almost 2X more comfortable than key competitor brands*.

Dr. Grip is Offered in an Array of Point Types and Barrel Colors

Dr. Grip's classic line has been enhanced over the years with the introduction of a wide variety of barrel colors and styles. The collection includes both fashion-forward and professional styles for a variety of writing needs and occasions. Dr. Grip is available in barrel colors that range from fun neon colors, to sophisticated metallic hues, to professional blue, black, and silver. In addition, Dr. Grip is offered in a variety of point types including Medium 1.0 mm ball point ink, Fine 0.7 mm gel ink, and #2 HB mechanical pencil lead. Every Dr. Grip pen and mechanical pencil is retractable and refillable for continued use and lasting value.

Introducing the Dr. Grip 4+1 Multi-function Writing Instrument

The newest addition to the Dr. Grip Collection is a writing instrument that serves as both pen AND pencil. In fact, the Dr. Grip 4+1 is 5 different writing options in one! Designed for getting complex jobs done with incredible precision, the Dr. Grip 4+1 has retractable Black, Blue, Red and Green advanced ink, as well as Mechanical Pencil lead. Dr. Grip 4+1 is perfect for anyone who needs--or just simply enjoys--different writing options for editing, organizing, and more. Dr. Grip is the ultimate all-in-one writing instrument.

I had one of these purchased at work because of severe carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. I also have the pen. I like the pen and pencil a lot. I didn't realize how much easier writing would be with a lighter instrument that is very comfortable. I am going to order one for home use.

Color: Blue Barrel
The grip on this pencil is perfect. If you ever take it apart, there is a firmer grip inside,( the colored portion), and then a clear softer grip on the outside for comfort. This allows you to have a really comfortable pencil without it being really wide and fat in your hands. The pencil is also not top heavy, the center of gravity feature seems to help out with comfort as well. My first pencil lasted a year with daily use, and it was only rendered unusable after a pit bull attack left it damaged beyond repair (my puppy got into my bag and munched the pencil). This "cheap" plastic pencil has been tossed in my bag with several heavy textbooks, dropped repeatedly both in the bag with textbooks and fallen on the floor. I feel this pencil can last for years and years and is quite durable for a student or office worker.

Also, this product was approved by the arthritis association, this is the reason I purchased this in the first place. I don't have permanent arthritis in my hands but do occasionally get RA flare-ups. When I am in pain, this is my go-to pencil...the width of the grip is not too small like a regular wooden pencil and not too fat like some of the other Dr. Grip pencils....it is perfect. If you have problems with stiff hands, or arthritis or even RA I would recommend at least trying this pencil out to see if it can make writing more comfortable.

Although the perfect mechanical pencil is yet to be made, I have tried dozens of different brands and for me, this is the best one by far on the market. I write with a heavy hand and the lead breaks far too often in most pencils - it can be very annoying to constantly break lead This pencil holds up. It writes smoothly and feels good in the hand, feels solid.

I now own about 10 of these pencils. At $8 apiece that is nuts, I know. I am not giving it five stars because the eraser is too small and non-standard so you can't find replacements easily, and it is too expensive. Since I prefer to write in pencil rather than pen, this is my only real choice, until someone comes out with a better one.

I have tried them all, bic makes a great pencil for the money but this one is much better to write with.

Best pencil I've owned.
The grip is just right, and the weight is unique and very comfortable.

I used to be a die-hard 0.5mm user, but the feel of this pencil is so good, I've switched to 0.7mm.
If this came in 0.5, I'd be an even happier customer!

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, need a lighter writing implement, and really need a 0.7 pencil, I suppose this one is as good as it gets. If, however, you can get away with a 0.5 pencil, I'd recommend Pilot Dr. Grip Limited 0.5mm Mechanical Pencil, Platinum Metallic Barrel, 36173 instead. Somewhat better made and has a "shaker" function. It is my personal preference, however, you might feel differently.

Here's to writing and drawing without the pain!
